has anyone figured out how many strands of yarn to use for the doll hair?

Cute Crochet Doll http://www.favecrafts.com/Crochet-Amigurumi/Cute-Crochet-Doll I want to know where in this pattern does it tell you to attach the doll head to the body!!?? Please and thank you asap. Iris

Hi Moxamomma, I just finished my doll. I did my hair differently, than the directions recommended and made the hair longer. It took about 1/2 of a 6 oz skein of Caron Simply Soft. The texture is wonderful. I can't say how many strands these directions would take, since I did my hair differently, but I would think if you did a sample by sewing about 1 or two inches of yarn on the tape, you could multiply it out for how ever many inches of tape you plan to use. When I was first thinking of following these instructions, I was planning to do a longer tape and sew a tighter spiral, than 11 inches would allow. But, that is me. You might get fine results doing the 11 inches. What I did was cut pieces 23" long. I finished the head, except for the last four decrease rows, to give my hands room to get into the head. Before I stuffed the head, I used my crochet hook and using every other stitch, I attached the yarn, by going around the post/stitch a full circle. When I was doing the hairline, I did every stitch, so there weren't any gaps. This made the hair longer and thicker than the photo, but with the silky "Simply Soft" yarn, the hair is gorgeous. When I was finished, the hair came a little longer than her feet, so I trimmed about an inch off, while holding the doll upside down. This caused the lower end, of the hair to be slightly tapered, which is a cool effect. You could also hold the doll upright and trim evenly (blunt cut) all the way around. When I was finished doing the face, I stuffed the head tightly, finished the decrease rows, leaving a three foot tail, that I could use to sew the head to the top of the neck, using a whip stitch. I made sure the head opening was the same size as the neck opening, so I could pretty much match stitch for stitch, from the neck to the head. When I had about an inch of opening left, I stopped and TIGHTLY stuffed the neck, so it could support the weight of the hair and head. Then, I finished sewing the gap closed. I hope this comes in time to help you finish your doll. I just HATE it when I get so far on a project and can't figure out how to finish it. This doll is just darling when she is all finished.

I just re-read my reply, and wanted to clarify, about how I did the hair. Each strand was 23 inches. When I pulled the strand through the hole, between stitches, I started by pulling one end of the strand from the inside to the outside, leaving half on the inside. In the hole on the other side of the crochet stitch/post, that I was using, I pulled the second end from the inside to the outside., equalizing the length. This next part is important to make sure it is secure: Then I went back into the head with my hook, and pulled one of the strands back into the head through the other hole, and then back out again through the hole on the other side of the stitch/post. This essentially wraps the yarn totally around the stitch/post. When both strands are on the outside again, pull them both to snug the wrap. So far, my strands haven't come out, so I think this should stay nicely. I hope that makes sense, if anyone wants to try it.

If you purchase the Lily Sugar N' Cream book that has this pattern in it..it will tell you how to attach the head.

pattern is cut however, there is nothing about attaching the head and IT DOESN'T TELL YOU HOW MANY STRANDS OF YARN TO USE FOR THE HAIR or am I missing something???

Just made this, but didn't see anything about attaching the head ! Did I miss that part? Please advise. Thanks

I am also waiting for directions to attaching the doll head.

the hair was difficult so i changed it i just wrapped a bunch of yarn on a piece of cardboard about 9 in long (u can alway cut the hair shorter after you place it on the dolls head) then i braided it . its very cute.

i could not get the pattern, tried mant times

I think my grandchildren will enjoy this doll. Are there patterns for more clothes?

I made this for our granddaughter almost 2 years ago and she still loves it. She puts different clothes on it.

I am having trouble understainding how to attach the hair.... where is the sewing line?? can someone explain it to me please....?? thank you...

I made this doll for my grand-daughter and she and the rest of the people who saw it, loved it. Instructions were great and it was a pleasure to make.

In the middle of making this, I'm a little worried about attaching the hair, not sure how to do it exactly.

I love this it soooooooooo cute I think everybody should crochet such a cute thing!

You know this is a Lily pattern right?? Anyway... here is the link to the lot of them: http://www.sugarncream.com/lilydolls/ There are also two brand new versions for Valentines Day: Date Night Lily: http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=5150 Date Night Billy: http://www.sugarncream.com/pattern.php?PID=5149 ENJOY!!!!
